Ya need to get away from thinking that you are a "sufferer" ADD is different not bad. Dont be so negative! Everyone responds to diff treatments. I am on all natural treatments and doing great. For me this treatment is better than any medication (not to mention its a lot healthier too)

What other treatments have you tried? Some people who dont respond to ritalin products will respond better to dexedrine or adderall. It would be best if you could find a natural treatment that helps you but its understandable that you would want something that can work fast since you are in the position of having to care for children. If you have other issues complicating your ADD then its gonna take longer to find a treatment that works for you. If you havent tried any other meds and think that you need to then tell your doctor. Theres many meds out there. Then you can always add natural treatments while still taking your meds and hopefully be able to lower the medication dosage. Ritalin LA isnt the most effective med for most people. From what Ive heard Concerta is what most people prefer as far as ritalin products. I think most adults prefer adderall though. Remember that these are hard core meds. Only take them if you are positive you really need them to function. Wellbutrin is an anti depressant sometimes used for ADD. Nice thing is its always in your system, bad thing is it would take awhile to work. Strattera is a new ADD med, non stimulant and it works all day long. Bad thing about it... it can take 4-8 weeks to work.

The book I mentioned earlier should help you figure out your subtype and give you some clues about what treatments might be most effective for you.

P.S. Can you get a full evaluation to see if you have any other things going on?
